Well, even if Carolina wins their next two games, San Francisco could also win their next two games going into Week 17. Carolina would still likely make the playoffs, but that game would be the difference in the #5 and #6.
It would depend on if the #5 or #6 seed was worth risking injuries over against a bitter/ nothing to lose Falcons team in Atlanta....
issue becomes if Sea has nothing to play for.....sits guys
The positive thing there is that game is played in week 16 and not 17... It may take Seattle winning in week 16 to clinch the #1 seed.. That is if we drop our 1pm game at home to the Saints. Seattle would have to win at 4:15 to clinch home field throughout the playoffs..
@NYJ - looked a lot easier a week ago. Hopefully Geno throws up another stinker for us.
NO - it would be extremely nice to get revenge and go into playoffs letting them know we can beat them
@ATL - isn't a walk in the park either.. they would love to play spoiler for us
If we can manage to win our next two and clinch the #5 seed, it would be nice to play ATL with the outcome being meaningless and possibly allow Anderson to get some reps before the playoffs...
